Disinformation seems to be everywhere these days, from the intelligence agencies infiltrating, and setting up ‘Truth Movements’ that operate within the Alt Media, to the armies of anonymous ‘trolls’ that infest almost every corner of the Internet.
Using multiple identities, these faceless entities spend endless hours on social networks and Forums, trawling thousands of accounts looking for their targets.
Their purpose is basically, to poison the well, making it harder to separate the genuine researchers and truth seekers from the fakes.
The intention is to thwart any effort to understand the targeted subject, causing frustration to anyone who makes an attempt to get to the truth.
It has the result that genuine truth seekers and this includes victims of criminal cover ups, find it both difficult and exasperating trying to distinguish between honest information and disinformation.
This adds an extra obstacle by becoming yet another time consuming and distracting layer to negotiate.
The mainstream media have a long and well documented history of disinformation, running smear campaigns to discredit and deflect attention from events that are seen to be possibly damaging, or even criminal acts committed by members of the establishment.
One example of this can be seen in the following article, which shows how the media have deliberately suppressed the true origins of the HIV/AIDS virus.
AIDS: A Doctor’s Note on the Man-Made Theory
By Alan Cantwell Jr, MD
“With the publication of ‘And The Band Played On in 1987’, the mainstream media became obsessed with author Randy Shilts’ “Patient Zero” story.
In the book, a young Canadian airline steward named Gaeton Dugas is portrayed as the promiscuous gay man “who brought the AIDS virus from Paris and ignited the epidemic in North America.”
Shilts, who later died of AIDS, never explained where or how Dugas got his infection.
After a year of swollen lymph nodes and a rash, Dugas was finally diagnosed with AIDS-associated “gay cancer” in June 1980 in New York City. What Shilts probably did not know is that when Dugas was diagnosed in 1980, over twenty percent of the Manhattan gays in the Hepatitis-B experiment were HIV-positive. This 20% infection rate was discovered after the HIV blood test became available in 1985, and after the stored blood at the New York Blood Center was retested for HIV antibodies. Remarkably, these gay men had the highest recorded incidence of HIV anywhere in the world for that time! Even in African populations, where AIDS has been theorised to exist for decades, or even millennia, there were never reports of such a high incidence of HIV in 1980. Shilts’ sensational Patient Zero story quickly became “fact.” Even the AMA-sponsored American Medical News (October 23, 1987) fell for the ludicrous story, claiming that Dugas “may have brought AIDS to the United States.” The media continue to promote unlikely stories about the origin of AIDS, always avoiding discussion of the idea that HIV came out of a laboratory, and always pointing the finger to black Africa.
In late 1987, the media widely reported an “old AIDS case” dating back to 1968. DNA testing of the blood and tissue was reported as HIV-positive.17 For the last year of his life, “Robert”, a 15-year-old black boy from St. Louis, wasted away with a bizarre disease that severely bloated his legs and genitalia. His sexual preference was unknown, but his doctors tried hard to insinuate the dying boy was gay. At autopsy, internal Kaposi’s sarcoma of the rectum was discovered, along with anal warts and lacerations. And after examining the dead boy’s rectum, the pathologist noted “a lax anal sphincter.” When newer viral identification techniques were reapplied to Robert’s blood in 1990, his blood retested HIV-negative, proving that Robert never had AIDS.
In 1990 the media sensationalised another “old AIDS case,” this time an unmarried English sailor who died in Manchester in 1959. When his stored tissue remains tested positive for HIV, major newspapers throughout the world used this case to again discredit the persistent rumour that AIDS was a man-made disease. The New York Times declared: “The case also refutes the widely publicised charges made by Soviet officials several years ago that AIDS arose from a virus that had escaped from a laboratory experiment that went awry or was a biological warfare agent. The human retrovirus group to which the AIDS virus belongs was unknown at the time. Nor did scientists then have the genetic engineering techniques needed to create a new virus”.
In a letter to the medical journal Lancet in January 1996, this 1959 case was ruled not to be AIDS because the DNA tests were found to be contaminated due to a laboratory error.
Despite the denial of the Times regarding the laboratory creation of new AIDS-like viruses, it was common practice during the early 1970s for virologists to alter animal viruses by inserting them into other animal species and into human tissue cells in culture.
Experiments performed at Harvard in the mid-1970s by Max Essex and Donald Francis (two of the best-known AIDS experts) produced AIDS in cats with the feline leukaemia retrovirus.
In addition, a decade before the outbreak of AIDS in the U.S., Robert Gallo was engineering cancer-causing retroviruses and studying the effects of viral mutants and their ability to suppress the immune system.”
